Large Train Station

I am soon beginning construction on a Train station. I want it to be a grand one and not a replica. An original. It will be either 6 or 9 feet long with a boarding platform. In the process of designing one I noticed that it will require a great deal of windows. This brought me to a few big questions.

How hard would it be to make a mold for window casings and doors?
What material should I use? plaster or a plastic?

Has anyone attempted this method or is it a waist of time and is there a better method?

I love the windows in your mill, what a great idea. I was thinking of maybe 1/2 inch 6 pain windows but I really like the arched top. The brick work you did is so sweet looking. How did you make it? or is it a kit?
What is the measurement on the windows? I assume that it is 1/2 square windows with 4 windows it would be over 1 inch square.
I was thinking of making the type you made with styrene strips. I am not sure where to get styrene but I will keep my eyes open. I may even make some out of wire and solder. I guess I will just have to do a few experiments and see what I like.
